Kansas Legislature Fights Off Effort To Roll Back Campus Carry

posted on April 6, 2017

On Tuesday, pro-gun lawmakers in Kansas fended off a maneuver by House Minority Leader Jim Ward to ban the full implementation of the Public Building Security Act before it is set to go into effect on July 1. 

Because of Ward’s inability to bring a proposal forth as an amendment to stop implementation, concealed firearms will be legal on college campuses and in public hospitals in Kansas starting this summer. The 2013 law that allowed handguns in most public buildings had given those institutions a four-year exemption.

Anti-gun Kansas lawmakers made several attempts this session to halt the implementation of the law, but have failed each time. The latest failure on Tuesday was a victory for the Sunflower State’s law-abiding gun owners and others who appreciate freedom.
